Environmental Health Sciences - Minor
131 Moulton Hal
The Environmental Health Sciences minor is intended for students who have a strong interest or curricular focus in a natural science major. The minor provides students with foundational concepts in environmental health as it relates to the broad field of public health. This includes students in a variety of majors, including, but not limited, to biology, chemistry, geology, geography, physics, botany and zoology.
Students who complete the required coursework and have 30 credit hours of coursework in specific public health areas, biology, chemistry, physics, geology, math or statistics can pursue a Sanitarian in Training (SIT) career path in State of Ohio agencies to become a Registered Sanitarian (RS) and are well equipped to enter the workforce in a variety of career paths.
Fully Offered At:
